I have an LG 42LC2D TV with INVALID FORMAT ON HDMI2

I have an LG 42LC2D TV, and am trying to hook up a new Samsung P3600 Blu-Ray player, but am getting INVALID FORMAT ON HDMI2 when using Brand New Monster M2000 Series HDMI cable. I have also tried using another HDMI cable, switched HDMI ports, downloaded updates for the P3600, etc. The player works fine using component cables, but that defeats the purpose of having a Blu-Ray... I have now tried my second brand new P3600 player, and have achieved the same result: INVALID FORMAT ON HDMI2.

Does anyone know what to do to resolve this issue?

I have had this same issue.

Problem your tv isnt true 1080p meaning it will not work however when you switch to componet cables goto menu then change the display settings to 720p or 1080i then your HDMI connection should work fine.

Receive an invalid format message from my Olevia 32 tv


You get invalid format, or format not support becuase the video resolution setting on your PC is too high for the monitor to display, you need to lower your PC video resolution to the native resolution of the TV to get the best picture. Look at the owner manual for your TV or search the web.

The region is hard coded into the blu-ray. A blu-ray purchased in Canada or the US cannot be made to accept all regions. You need a unit from another country like Europe or Australia.

I have a z50p3 I tried to hook a samsung 1600


Sorry, man I have the same problem, with the same tv and player. Did you ever get a solution? LG Service Tech came out and his LG bluray player worked, whereas my Samsung didn't hooked to the TV. (It would spordically work going thru my HK254 AVR.)

He said either 1) the Samsung player was defaulting to a format that the Zenith being 3 years old could not decode (eg. 1080P) or that I might need to change inputs several times to get it to sync up or 3) by an LG Bluray player.

He said the Zenith was old and that newer sets are built with circuitry to help navigate the handshake easier. He couldn't find any service bulletins on it, and the one I got from LG he said didn't exist.

Invalid format error with P1600 blu-ray and LG LCD TV 42"


It may be a firmware issue if hdmi works with other items such as playstation.
If no hdmi the main Pcb hdmi ports are bad and the main Pcb would have to be replaced.

Consumers cannot upgrade the firmware so a shop would be the only option.

I can't get our Samsung Blu-ray player(Model BD-P3600) with wi-fi to connect to my computer router. I'm trying to connect with Netflix for video streaming through the player. I keep getting a message from...


I am not an expert a "tinkerer"at best but I do have the 3600 like you and I have no problems connecting. Make sure there aren't any spaces or special characters in you router name. Follow your instruction manual and get the 3600 connected first then try netflix: Menu, setup, network, set your settings and it will tell you available networks, choose yours, enter your security code then do a connection test. If its not connecting at what step are you having a problem?
